 Professor Ian Gust AO 
“Changing public health policy…what they don’t teach you at medical school!”

While immunization is among the most cost effective public health interventions, its benefits have been largely confined to the developed world. Over the past 30 years a revolution has occurred in our thinking about the role of immunization and the way that vaccines are made, procured and delivered, which has reduced global inequality and saved tens of millions of lives.

Professor Ian Gust AO is a medical virologist who has made major contributions to the development of vaccines to combat hepatitis A and human papillomavirus and played an important role in introducing the hepatitis B vaccine into routine immunisation programs. He built an internationally renowned research team at Fairfield Hospital in Melbourne, founded and directed the Macfarlane Burnet Institute for Medical Research, established the National HIV Reference Laboratory and directed the NHMRC’s special unit for AIDS virology. Professor Gust is actively involved with the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative in New York and the International Vaccine Institute in Seoul and continues to consult for the World Health Organisation. In 1992, he was appointed an Officer of the Order of Australia for service to public health, particularly in the prevention of hepatitis and AIDS.
